Dear Coach,

You are invited to the 18th Annual New Balance Games on Saturday, January 26th. The meet will be sanctioned by the National Federation of High Schools and is open to all high school age athletes competing on their high school teams.

We'd like to announce that long time meet director Lou Vasquez has stepped down. To honor his years of service to the Armory the meet MVP award at the Hispanic Games has been named after him.

Please note that a boys and girls One Mile Steeple Chase has been added to the program at 9:00am.

The featured Invitational events will be the 55m hurdles, 400m dash, and One Mile Run. The top 6 athletes in each event will receive plaques.

Thank you for choosing New Balance Games and The New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory. We look forward to seeing you.
